Deriving a physical data model of existing systems is a pressing requirement among many large IT departments at the moment. A clear and full understanding of enterprise data and how it all relates together is an essential prerequisite for projects concerning data governance, compliance, master data management, process optimisation, and so on.
This article describes how you should carry out the three most important tasks.
Relationship analysis is the single most important activity when deriving the enterprise model. It allows you to find and identify data items, and find intra and inter system relationships. The most reliable form of relationship discovery is based on finding common values in the actual data, which is exactly what Experian Pandora does, automatically.
The next most important investigative activity is to search for hidden data; values which match certain patterns or which embed other values. Experian Pandora’s ability to quickly perform a search of all data is a practical necessity for this task to be effective.
